Aurinia saxatilis ‘Dudley Nevill Variegated’

Perennial Alyssum

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.091.140

(Formerly Alyssum saxatilis) This is a unique selection of the springtime favorite, Basket-of-Gold. Plants form a cascading mound of olive-green foliage brightly dappled with creamy variegation. Sprays of primrose-apricot flowers are a lovely contrast in late spring. An excellent subject for that prime spot in a sunny rock garden or wall. Plants seem to require very good winter drainage, so avoid planting in heavy soils or low areas. Prune lightly after flowering is over, and remove any green shoots.
